American Airlines announced to make some short-term changes in American’s existing Tokyo service from Chicago by planning to fly a nonstop flight between Las Vegas and Tokyo Narita and the route will only last 11 days.
After having words with the Airlines helpline, American decides to market the new Tokyo-Las Vegas in combination with its frequent flyer and joint-venture JAL (Japan Airlines). The flight will give a faster and easier way to travelers and a unique experience by reaching the Las Vegas’ CES event, a two-week long world’s largest technology event.
The nonstops Las Vegas-Tokyo airline starts Jan 4th and runs through Jan 14th which is coinciding with one of the Vegas’ top corporate draws- the CES (Consumer Electronic Show) of 2019. The number of visitors is expected in 2019 event is more than 180,000 as per the projections from the International Airport- McCarran.
American Airlines will function one flight daily between Tokyo Narita and Las Vegas during these 11 days period with 226 seats Boeing 787-8 also including 28 business class lie-flat seats, customized LED lighting.
According to the Shane Hodge’s, American’s managing director of Asia Pacific Sales, statement, “Thousands of travelers from Japan and further part of Asia come to Las Vegas every year to attend CES. We are thrilled to make this onboard network offered by Japan Airlines and American Airlines getting to the world’s largest technology event even faster and easier than ever before.”
January is typically one of the lower-than-normal booking and softest months of the year for most of the U.S. airlines, which gives the new Tokyo-Las Vegas 11-days break option a low risk to American to try out this new route smoothly.
Meanwhile, American will amend its existing Tokyo-Chicago route which will include Las Vegas option. The normal flight O’Hare resume during this 11 days period. American’s flight will operate on the Las Vegas route. The westbound flight will depart Chicago with one stop in Vegas before continuing on Tokyo. The return route will nonstop operate from Tokyo Narita to Las Vegas before flying on to O’Hare.
Japan Airlines’ nonstop Tokyo Narita-Chicago O’Hare will keep on operating as should be expected during the period, safeguarding a relentless choice for American frequent fliers by means of its Japanese accomplice.
